Are you finding your relationships difficult or unsatisfactory? Perhaps you feel lonely, anxious or depressed and would like a greater sense of connection with those around you. Or perhaps you are a couple stuck in a pattern of conflict or unhappiness, contemplating separation and divorce. It can be difficult to resolve such issues alone. The process of seeking therapy and finding a therapist can appear to be pretty difficult too and my aim is to make the experience as straightforward as possible.
I am an experienced and qualified psychotherapist and offer psychotherapy and relationship counselling to individuals and couples. With a kind and thoughtful approach, I seek to create a safe and secure space where we can work together towards resolving the difficulties you might be experiencing. Each individual and couple is unique and the focus will be on exploring what works for you.This is a collaborative process and the aim is for the work to be yours and something you can take away and keep with you.
Life can present many challenges, times when we might feel confused or overwhelmed and it becomes difficult to think clearly. Getting stuck in a place where the ability to communicate appears to be lost and conflict escalates is surprisingly easy and finding a way out might feel impossible but creating the space for thought and the potential for change is achievable.
A non-judgemental and inclusive welcome is extended to every individual and couple of all cultures, backgrounds and orientations.
Training, qualifications & experience
- I trained at Tavistock Relationships (formerly The Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships) attaining the Post-Graduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Couple and Individual Psychotherapy and Counselling.
- To build on the substantial experience gained there and to add to my knowledge and widen my approach I became a Relate registered Counsellor. In addition to my private practice I continue in the pursuit of further clinical development with Relate and with other agencies.
- I have an MSc (KCL) in Health and Society which examined in depth the societal causes of ill health and the importance of good relationships in promoting better health.
- Being a registered member of the BACP (MBACP) I adhere to their professional code of ethics and place client care and confidentiality at the forefront of my practice.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
